Lending a Helping Hand
Taking part in what has been a fantastic community initiative, RHCV have helped to deliver two lighting rigs to Meadow Lane, the home of Notts County FC!
Paul Pearson, Commercial Director, at RHCV, commented, “We are a local, family run business, and so doing our part to help in this project can only help to serve the wider community. We were more than happy to lend a hand in this endeavour.”
Tom Gallagher, Max Keizer, Janice Leung and Mark Mennear – students from Nottingham University – produced four lighting rigs to encourage grass growth in all the problem areas of the Meadow Lane playing surface.
The students were helped by Nottinghamshire Police, who supplied the lamps which had been seized in cannabis raids, as well as Ailsen Ltd, who provided the workspace for the rigs to be constructed.
These new lighting rigs, which effectively produce a false sunlight and encourage grass growth, should see a dramatic improvement in the level of remedial work that the groundstaff are able to carry out on the pitch during the forthcoming season.
Stadium Manager Greg Smith said of the new lighting rigs: “It’s been a long hard season here at Meadow Lane and for this to happen it only gives us a bit of forward thinking for next season that we’ve got something that we can use to help support the pitch. We’d really like to thank RHCV for their help in delivering these huge rigs”
